Forum: GratefulDead Subject: TDIH (1969) - French Suite No. 3 in C Minor "Allemande"> Yellow Dog Story

I'm not certain it's the exact Bach minuet that TC plays in between Mama Tried and Dire Wolf (perhaps someone here more familiar with classical music can confirm that?), but the 40 seconds or so of music certainly makes for one of the more facinating tuning breaks you are ever going to hear.

Unfortunately the sound quality of the stage mike/degraded sbd composite is pretty bad, even for 1969 standards. This show is not as enjoyable as the following Thelma Theater performance (12/12/69) and its incredible Alligator/Caution suite, but the rendition of The Eleven is very unique, particularly the pre-verse intro jam in 8's.

I don't listen to this show very much, but TC's tuning break is worth checking out if you have never heard it...

Does anyone know of any other examples of classical music being performed at a Grateful Dead show?

I'm pretty sure Phil's bass solo in New Potato Caboose is from a classical piece, but can't place which one.

Per Deadlists...

The Phil bass solo in New Potato Caboose contains a jam based on Frederick Chopin's piece "Opus #64", also known as "The Minute Waltz".

But it's not the Minute Waltz! At least, I don't hear much resemblance...

I have this vague recollection that while Hornsby was in the band, Garcia once started teasing a classical piece. Just can't remember which one or what show. How's that for a useful post?

Well , I gave a try . I don't think it is the Allemande from 3, in b minor, or the Allemande from 2 which is in c minor . I then, sampled all the French Suites, but didn't find it . I did use the Glen Gould versions, which can be insanely fast, and TC could be putting his own take on it . It could be the said pice, but the sound is pretty distant, and I am not a Bach expert . Figures TC would not be playing a well know Bach bit, or at least what I can tell . So I struck out !
If I was back at Tower I could have collared one of my Bach nuts, or players to play "name that tune " .
Agree on you take on the show , in general .

Isn't Yellow Dog Story also credited to Bach?

It often gets mis-credited to Bach. In fact it was written by the lesser known Johann Sebastian Bark.

As if the Yellow Dog Story wasn't bad enough, now puns on the Yellow Dog Story!

Y'all are amazing...
